Apostille

     The Apostilles are attached by competent authorities appointed by the Government of a State that is a party to the convention. A list of these authorities is maintained by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. Examples of designated authorities are embassies, ministries, courts or (local) Governments. The Apostille Certificate confirms that the questionable document is authentic and verified in the country of origin. Once this certificate or stamp is attached, the document will be legal and acceptable to foreign authorities in the countries participating in the Hague Convention. Requirements are different for each country, and many countries that do not attend the convention accept certificates from The Hague Apostle. Those who do not need it may need to legalize more embassies.

     Apostille attestation is a means of attesting to the documents required to authorize them in any country of the Hague Convention. Document Apostille is a globally certified document that is legally accepted in more than 116 countries and is widely accepted in European and American countries.

What is Apostille?

The dictionary definition of apostille as a French word means ‘certification’, in a contextual context, the apostille is basically the formality of proving the authenticity and credibility of a document. When you apostille a document, you will receive an apostille sticker and / or an apostille stamp from the Authority. This is a computer generated with a unique identification number, which is applied to the back of the document. It maintains a record online and allows the relevant authorities to verify the authenticity in a more convenient and efficient manner. The body or organization in which you present the documents can advise you on whether they should legalize / guide the apostilled. You can usually get advice from the concerned government department, educational institution, embassy and consulate.

When is Apostille Required?

Document Apostille is required when the need to legalize the document is eliminated when traveling abroad for all reasons, for example, obtaining a work visa or work visa, applying for a temporary or permanent residence, or for pursuing education on student visa, enforcing deals for business expansion e.g.  importing or exporting products. This provision is mandatory for countries that are part of the Hague Convention.

What is Hague Convention?

The Hague Convention in Luxembourg on October 5, 1961 was also known as the Apostille Hague Convention or Apostille Convention. However, it came into force on January 14, 1965. The Convention was enacted to eliminate the need to legalize documents and certificates to facilitate liberalization between countries. When one obtains an apostille in documents, the documents do not need to be duplicated again for another signatory country. Barriers to trade and other sectors have been reduced, and there is better accessibility across countries. The Apostille is the legalization of a document for international use (in the member states of the Hague Convention only). Many countries have come together to create a simple way to “legalize” documents for universal recognition. This group of countries is called the Hague Convention. They adopted a document called the Apostille, which is recognized internationally by all member countries.
